http://www.pickensplan.org/theplan/ I saw this commercial somewhere and I thought it was interesting. He's talking about how wind power is the answer. But the little I know about wind power is that the wind is usually in rural areas, but they need the power in urban areas, so transmission is a big obstacle. Also its not always windy when you need power. Although one turbine, i think, can generate up to 1 megawatt of power which can power 800 homes.
